Cistus Nursery Tour

via Joyce Jacson, Mt. Hood Section Co-Chair, ASLA Oregon Chapter

Mt Hood Chapter September 13th Event:
Tour of Cistus Nursery on Sauvie Island

“Cistus offers Mediterranean climate, southern hemisphere, hardy tropical plants, and more”.

If you are interested in finding unusual and interesting plant material come to ASLA’s MT Hood Chapter meeting at the Cistus Nursery on September 13.

Nursery owner Sean Hogan (aka as one of the Indiana Joneses of the botanical world according to garden writer Sharon Cohoon) and staff member Sutter Wehmeier, will share their passion for plants and introduce or reintroduce some unusual plant material that does well in our climate. Tour the nursery on your own and then spend an hour listening to Sean and Sutter describe some of the plants they are excited about. After that mingle with your colleagues in the front of the nursery, around some lounge chairs, and perhaps a small wood fire for some refreshments and good conversation.
